I am developing a windows service using C#. Having retrieved a list of window handles of target browser windows, I want to be able to close these instances without killing the process.

Since some browser instances run in a linkes process space, killing the process sometimes results in closing multiple windows.

Would SendMessage do the trick? Is there a better way? Does the Local\System account have enough privileges to perform this task?
